November 11th is Veterans Day, a day to honor America's military Veterans. Since 1954, the Veterans Day National Committee has worked to ensure Veterans Day receives proper and widespread observance. Part of that outreach this year includes this video for students explaining how and why we honor Veterans, not just on Veterans Day, but year-round.
On the VA Veterans Day page you'll find not only this video but also Veterans Day History, local and national observances and resources to teach students the value of honoring our Veterans. Visit the site at http://www.va.gov/opa/vetsday

– A new Veterans’ Day-themed episode is available on kids’ virtual field trip Web site Meet Me At The Corner (MeetMeAtTheCorner.org). Meet Me At The Corner combines the content that educators and parents trust with the high-tech delivery method today’s kids embrace.
The episode starts with a visit to Colorado Springs’s Memorial Park led by Hannah, a 8-year-old Meet Me At The Corner correspondent. Hannah then interviews World War II veteran, Robert Williams. Williams shares with viewers the various jobs he held in the military, the significance of VE Day and VJ Day, and what it takes to be a good soldier.
To help expand on the content, MeetMeAtTheCorner.org’s “Learning Corner” provides parents and teachers with a variety of episode-specific resources, activities and guided questions that meet national- and state-based educational standards.
Our hope is that this episode initiates conversations about the true meaning of Veterans’ Day,” says Donna Guthrie, award-winning children’s author and founder of Meet Me At The Corner.
